Fleet technicians were a type of technician who operated and maintained the Xyston-class Star Destroyers of the Final Order. They were fanatically loyal to the Sith Eternal and the dark lord they served, Darth Sidious.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Sith technicians wore black flame-resistant uniforms with flared trousers, allowing the storage of various tools. The uniforms were designed to be sealed, keeping the technician safe from a majority of the toxic environments found in ships.
The helmet worn by the technicians was based off of the helmets used by the Galactic Empire's navy troopers and weapons technicians. It was red with a black visor and had a particle-scattering corrugated surface. The helmet had air-filtration systems and could block dangerous electromagnetic radiation. System data was sent wirelessly to the helmet's receivers and projected on the interior of the visor.
Role[edit | edit source]
Fleet technicians were tasked with smoothly operating the Xyston-class Star Destroyers of the Sith fleet. Mandates could vary from tending to the radioactive superlaser, to operating on the bridge of the Destroyer, the latter of which was considered to be a much more favorable position to be assigned to.
